WHAT IS ZO SKIN HEALTH?
ZO Skin Health provides comprehensive solutions for creating and maintaining healthy skin for anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, unique skin condition, or skin type. From correcting sun damage + pigmentation to preventing + protecting against future damage, ZO® has your skin health covered.
ZO Skin Health is a comprehensive skincare line based on the “fundamental five” steps to improve your skin at the cellular level — cleanse, exfoliate, tone, barrier repair and SPF. Each skin care system is tailored to your personal needs. If you need an anti-ageing routine, you will be prescribed products that will help soften facial lines and stimulating natural collagen production. For instance, if you have oily and acne-prone skin, there’s a line for you that reduces blemishes and helps restore balance in your skin.

Key points about ZO Skin Health:
Medical-Grade Skincare: ZO Skin Health offers medical-grade skincare products that are often available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and other skincare professionals. These products typically contain higher concentrations of active ingredients compared to over-the-counter products.
Comprehensive Approach: The ZO Skin Health philosophy emphasizes a comprehensive approach to skincare. The product lines are designed to address various skin issues, including aging, pigmentation, acne, and sun damage.
Product Categories: ZO Skin Health offers a range of products in different categories, including cleansers, exfoliants, toners, treatments, moisturizers, and sunscreens. Each product is formulated to work synergistically within a customized skincare regimen.
Aggressive Anti-Aging Treatments: Some of ZO Skin Health’s products are known for their more aggressive approach to anti-aging. This includes the use of retinoids, peptides, antioxidants, and other ingredients to promote collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture.
ZO Skin Health Protocols: Dr. Zein Obagi has developed specific skincare protocols that often involve a step-by-step process for using ZO products. These protocols are intended to optimize results and may involve a combination of cleansers, exfoliants, treatments, and other products.
Professional Guidance: ZO Skin Health products are often recommended and prescribed by skincare professionals. Dermatologists, aestheticians, and other trained skincare experts can assess an individual’s skin and recommend a customized regimen based on their specific needs and concerns.
It’s important to note that skincare needs can vary from person to person, and what works for one individual may not work for another. If you are considering ZO Skin Health products, it’s advisable to consult with a skincare professional at UltraSmile who can assess your skin and provide personalized recommendations based on your skin type and concerns.
HOW DOES ZO SKIN HEALTH WORK?
ZO Skin Health and Medical products aim to maintain skin health and to treat problem skin, by working from the inside out, as opposed to the quick fixes offered by many topical treatments available on the high street. Put simply, they work by first activating, and then stimulating skin cells to repair, replenish and maintain themselves.
The way ZO products do this, is via a multi-step process:
- Cleanse and Scrub– To get rid of any surface debris on the skin, and slough away any dead skin cells.
- Oil Control and Tone– To either control excess oil production or soothe dry skin.
- Treatment– To prepare the barrier of the skin to maximise the absorption of the active ingredients, for optimum effect.
- Calm and Nourish– To soothe the skin from irritation and provide hydration, as well as anti-inflammatory action.
- Protect– To prevent any further skin damage, with protection against UVA and UVB rays from the sun, as well as HEV (high energy visible) or blue light.
WHAT DO THEY CLAIM TO TREAT?
The ZO products, particularly the medical range, aim to address and treat the main signs of ageing, as well as repairing skin conditions, including inflammation, pigmentation marks, rosacea, sun damage, and acne. There are different products for different skin types, so consult your ZO Skin Health specialist to determine which treatments will be best for your problem skin. They are designed for home use, but under the direction of a trained specialist or medical professional (depending on the range).
ZO SKIN HEALTH PRODUCT RANGE
The ZO product range includes ZO Skin Health and ZO Medical, which are for professional use only.
Examples of the ZO Skin Health products available for each skin complaint, include:

This may be as a stand-alone treatment programme or in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments.

Not To Be Used In
ZO products are suitable for all skin types and ages. However, they may not be compatible with certain skin conditions or medication.
If you are considering using these products, you will need to attend a consultation with one of our trained ZO Skin Health specialist practitioner, for an assessment, before going ahead with any treatment. Do not be tempted to buy products over the internet, or from family and friends, as a proper check of your skin will determine what is, and isn`t, suitable for you to use.
Furthermore, pregnant and breast feeding women should avoid treatment unless they have the permission from their GP.
Duration of Effects
It takes approximately 6 weeks of using ZO products before the effects become visible; and you will continue to see positive results if you carry on with the regime. It is important to note, that although the products will improve the visible signs of ageing, they do not stop the ageing process.
Reported Side Effects
Retinol is a powerful anti-ageing product that encourages healthy action in cells, as well as promoting cell renewal and growth. This will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, because retinol is so potent, it can cause irritation to the skin, as well as peeling. If you experience this, or any other side effects, you are advised to stop using the products and consult your ZO specialist for further advice, which may include reducing the number of days that you apply a retinol based product to build up tolerance.
The products should only be bought through approved stockist cosmetic clinics with ZO trained staff. A treatment `kit` or plan will be created to target your specific skincare needs and some can only be prescribed by a medical professional.
Prices for the ZO Skin Health products start from approximately £23.
Do not buy ZO Skin Health products from other sources, such as online trading sites, without consulting a clinic for skincare advice.
